Membership Campaign

Volunteerism is not just a giving of time – but of ourselves. By this gift, we are doing far more than counteracting the economic recession. We are building a nation of neighbors helping neighbors, making each of us more fulfilled as individuals, and creating a solidarity that makes us more united as communities and as a nation, said Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson, during his opening remarks at the Neighbors Helping Neighbors: Summit on Volunteerism as a Response to the Economic Crisis.

The membership campaign follows this call to service by not only asking Knights and their families to serve, but to encourage them to bring men with a similar commitment to helping others into our Order – increasing our ability to serve our neighbors. Our members help our communities and people in need in many ways – by sponsoring blood drives or youth sports teams, raising funds and volunteering for Special Olympics and other programs for people with intellectual disabilities, holding food drives for local soup kitchens. Through these and other actions, they show prospects firsthand the great work that our Order does and encouraging them to join the Knights of Columbus.

Cumulative figures show that during the past decade, the Knights of Columbus has donated nearly $1.28 billion to charity, and provided in excess of 612 million hours of volunteer service in support of charitable causes. While impressive, these figures can be even greater if we have more men and their families involved in our good works. Recruiting these prospects will help make this fraternal year truly “The Year of the Volunteer.”
